Cliff Drive / Re: City leaders have "plan" for Cliff Drive reservoir
« on: September 11, 2008, 08:17:58 PM »
I dont think the final 6 are long enough.  And I know that Jack has some plans that will spice that side of the course up.. If you dont like length you might wanna stay home for this one boys.  new #17 in particular.  I want to see 54-56 be a hot score to get out there.  I think that one day if Jack continues the process of the course anything in the 50s will be considered under par.  Oh yeah!

I would like to see that.  Some 450' wooded holes would go a long way in adding some true par 4's too.  #17 on that island would be sweet as well.

That is one of the holes I'm speaking of.

Ok Dick....Making it longer probably wouldn't suck, but why not make multiple placements like rosie? That way it can be friendly to all levels of golfers, pros and ams alike!! And I think I did say it needed tweeking, not redesigning. Dick you need to stop beating me, I'm not your kid  ;)

                                        I still think an all forehand course would be better ;D
                           

                 LZ

Yes all forehand course would be better.. oh wait rosedale uptop is already there.  ok there ya go.

damn you cant make anyone happy  :P    its to short its to long i think that jack did a good job spliting the course up!!! adding length to it whould suck shorting it up whould suck it just needs some tweeking done to it and it whould be a competitive course

if you want to change it !!!!!!!!!!! make it all forehand shots that works for me ;D


           LZ

Adding Length would not suck.  We can't design every course with the mindset of an amatuer golfer.  350ft is a duece to most pros.  PARKED!  So the "LONG" holes are just Long par 3's  They don't challenge the PROs in the same way they challenge you and me.  Challenging yes as is!  It's time that KC start thinking about TRUE disc golf par 4's and maybe one day 5s  Which yea BV has some but that's overkill.  Jack has the best piece of land to work with and even more on the way for another course.   

It's not a redesign anyway, its just a little tweeking.

There is no offense to your opinion I just don't agree.  I think we have the course your looking for in Down Under.  And I do like the back nine.  Yes it does need trees, but the length is what makes it cliff drive.  But to say we don't have enough courses that are short and boring . pleeeease.  We have WAY TO MANY little courses for people to learn to play.  We need more BIG courses to challenge our elite players and also help some of us crappy players like myself get better.  And Cliff Drive in my opinion gives you every look.  If the whole course looked like the front I would just drive to Rosy .  But dont think you offend anyone.  Opinions are like Arse soles.  We all got em and they all stink.  :o

I just played out there today and as far as dumping, I didn't see any.  However, it looks like someone has been living out on hole #3.  There were a few shirts laying out to dry and some other stuff laying on the ground.

As far as the future of the course, I would love to see more wooded holes such as the front nine.  I know some of the big arms would be sad to see the 5 million foot holes go by the way side, but don't we have enough of those courses around?  For me, I enjoy the technical aspect of the game more than just throwing it 8 miles off every tee.  Even holes like ten where you eventually wind up in the woods have more appeal to me then a wide open field.

BTW the front nine does look great.  The improvements from the begging of the summer are amazing.

Really?  You think there is ANY course in KC that compares to the variety of Cliff Drive?  Yes there are big holes, and little ones and wooded and wide open and by streets and down hills and up hills and around corners.  Really?  Ok.

Wow, what a great thread.  It has been forever since I have been on here, especially since moving back to the states and not living in KC any longer. 

Aha ... I did something good.  He said Wow!

General Banter / New ratings as of 9-8-08 .. We now have 2 1000+ players!
« on: September 08, 2008, 03:42:45 PM »
Congratulations to Dave Hemmeline and Arturo Villareal for their jump UP in the Ratings.  David is now our highest rated player at 1010 and Arturo has finally broken in to the big leagues with his I believe FIRST 1000 rating.  Good job this year guys, keep it up.. Oh ya and I went back down and everyone else went up.. Good job to you people for your personal accomplishments or failures like in my case.

Yeah, Nick was on the card behind me when it happened.  I was looking for my disc when I heard Luke yelling my name for help.  The bone had peirced the skin and was bleeding. One of the guys on my card saw this and almost fainted.  Later in that round I found Lindsey (nick's girlfriend) and told her the news of what happened.  The first words out of her mouth were "Which hand was it?".  A true disc golfer!

Later when I was talking to Nick about the accident he told me that after he broke it he thought "Man this isn't good" and asked Luke to "Pull his finger"... Which he DID!  That prolly didn't help.  I'm actually quite sure it hurt... Really Really Really bad!

Ok I did a little math and this is the ranking as far as I can figure right now.  In order

Course      Avg. Score     # of votes      %

Water Works     113              13            8.6
Cliff Drive           95              13            7.3
Rosedale UT       91               13             7
Swope               75               13          5.77
Blue Valley         63               11           5.73
tRosedale DU      67               12           5.58
tWyco               67               12           5.58
William Yates      21                4            5.25
Prairie Center      55               11             5
Pleasant Hill        25                7            3.57
Shawnee Mission  24               7            3.43

This is figured by give 10 points to #1, 9 to #2 and so on.  Try your own way see what you come up with.

I like your math.. Or the fact your good at it.  We'll use this as our system.  That and now I don't have to come up with one :)..  The top 3 are no surprise to me.

If after you play the Ozanam's Tournament you wish you could just play some private Mini Disc Golf Tournament...  I know all of you are...  I may just happen to know where one might be happening right up the street from the course.

Over the weekend Kate and I built a garden for her in the backyard.  My payoff?  I get a mini course!  Check it out on-line here --> www.sillyrabbitsaloon.com/Circle_R.html <-

The tournament will be 5 dollars a person per round you play.  The round will go quick.  I will have some beverages on site for a small fee OR you can BYOB! 

You must RSVP by emailing me at dick.parker@hotmail.com or if you have my # call.  If there is no interest I will play by myself and drink my own beer.  Lemme know.   

Also My course has object pins so if you bring your basket I will have no problem switching them out for a little more difficulty.
